    Anyone tried them?

    Apparently, Spetsnaz swear by them. I know Russian SFs tactical ability is questionable, but they are undoubtedly, "'ard as nails".
  2. A lad i work with swears by them.He has a couple of sizes and can get a full work out with them.
    He uses them Offshore on the rigs, Its one of the old style rigs so doesnt have a gym onboard. He says kettle bells are the easiest way to get a full workout without needing all the gym equipment, They are bloody heavy though

    If I remember rightly these were used in the1920/30 they have been refined.
    I’m not to sure on the extra wrist strain though; however I can see the extra range of movement these can offer.

    Give them ago, there’s always space in the cupboard for unused boy’s toys

    :eek: :eek:
  4. The Dyke bird on Biggest Loser Uk was using them. Click on Red team trainer
  5. Has anyone else used these? Lots of people are raving about them at the minute but are they any good?
  6. Guy at our gym swears by them and I watched him putting a few people through their paces...looks like a good and complete workout.
